Why the 2013 Mazda3 is a Top-Seller, Award-Winning

Last updated 5 years ago

For the 2013 model year, Mazda has made some minor modifications to their top-selling, award-winning compact four-door, the Mazda3. This speedy little car has been upgraded with better fuel economy and a host of new features.

With three different body styles to choose from, there’s a Mazda3 for every driver. Here’s a closer look at the 2013 Mazda3 family:

Mazda3 Four-Door

This sedan can get up to 40 mpg on the highway when you choose the 2.0L SKYACTIV® engine paired with the SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed Sport automatic transmission, which is available on the Mazda3 Touring, Grand Touring, and iSport. Choose the optional technology packages to get Bluetooth connectivity and navigation. No matter which trim level you choose, your Mazda3 will have more interior room than competing cars and provide you with better handling and a smoother ride.

Mazda3 Five-Door Hatchback

Featuring a roof that slopes down into a rear-roofline spoiler, the Mazda3 five-door boasts bolder styling than any comparably priced hatchback. The exterior is aerodynamically sculpted to minimize wind resistance and increase fuel economy. With features such as heated side mirrors and dual chrome-tipped exhaust pipes coming standard, the 2013 Mazda3 five-door stands out from other vehicles in its class. If you crave power and performance, select the 167-horsepower 2.5L MZR engine.


The hood scoop on the front of the MazdaSpeed3 boldly announces this compact car’s sport performance capabilities. The 2.3L MZR engine can generate 263 horsepower and, thanks to the Mazda Advanced Torque Management System, it can send up to 280 pound-feet of torque to the 18-inch wheels. Thanks to the ultra-responsive six-speed manual transmission and the specially tuned suspension and brakes, the MazdaSpeed3 offers a truly exhilarating driving experience for Fairfax drivers.

You can find the perfect Mazda3 for you at Brown’s Fairfax Mazda, serving the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. area.
